  1. Make time: Why we spend our most productive time on the wrong things (Google Cloud Next ‘17)

    Time management is hard, and most of us struggle. We procrastinate; we overcommit; we underestimate how long things take; we spend too much time in meetings, and crucially we don’t spend enough time on our health, relationships, or ‘real work’. It sounds bleak, but somehow, some people seem to manage much better than others! In this video, Ian Leader and Jacob Bank talk about the behavioral psychology that underlies these mistakes and share some techniques to harness Gmail and Google Calendar to make the most of your time.

  2. THIS is computer music: Ge Wang at TEDxStanford

    Ge Wang is an assistant professor at Stanford’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). His research focuses on programming languages and interactive software design for computer music, mobile and social music, laptop orchestras and education at the intersection of computer science and music. Wang is the author of the ChucK audio programming language, as well as the founding director of the Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLOrk) and the Stanford Mobile Phone Orchestra (MoPhO). He is also the co-founder of Smule (which makes social music making apps and has over 100 million users) and the designer of the iPhone’s Ocarina and Magic Piano.

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
